I used to love to read the book and all it was was a short fantasy! Well, I think If you keep thinking as I did about the book and what could happen on an island of wild things if you happened to land on such an island then the story will make total sense to you.I loved it and understood that the wild things on the island was just like him.! I fell in love with this movie!!! I really can't understand why people don't like it..?Evidently they did not understand that the movie and book are supposed to be a fantasy!That is it just a fantasy!!
